Great saddles

(Customer's Reviews)

Bought these to replace stock Fender, cold-rolled steel saddles and the difference was immediate. The first thing I noticed right out of the package was the weight (in a good way) of the saddles. Once installed I noticed a slight increase to my sustain and a bit more crispness and darkness to my tone.. All in all, very happy with the outcome for such a relatively inexpensive and easy upgrade.


Long intonation screws

(Customer's Reviews)

Great replacement saddles!


Pretty Nice, But Not Perfect

(Customer's Reviews)

Just installed these on my Telecaster Blacktop HH to replace the stamped metal saddles that it came with. I like these a lot, though I do have a few nitpicks that keep me from giving them a 5-star rating.
The springs are good quality metal, but they are cylindrical. So if you use any low tunings you may have to remove them or replace them with conical springs.
The intonation screws are quite long, so again, if you tune low you'll have to replace or modify them so as not to pinch the strings when you set intonation.
The height set screws have smooth action, but are generally too long for a low action (2/32" at the 12th fret). There were two saddles that came with shorter screws, so I used these on the first and sixth strings, but with the radius, all of them had at least a 1/16" above surface.
And finally, while I like the chrome fine, it would be nice if these where offered in brushed steel like the American Standard models. Though, I will admit that the surfaces was smooth and mirror finished.
A nice product, just not perfect.
